Networking on Wednesdays
Sometimes having a blog makes me realize just how redundant my life really is. I guess good bloggers make the redundantness interesting with their great writing skills. But, what about when you're just tired? I woke up at 6:30 (or was it 6?) to be at my networking meeting. It was fun and we got to eat quiche and fruit. I met a psychologist who was interested in my products and wanted my card (she was interested....) Each time we go everyone puts one of their cards in a basket and at the end they draw the cards out to win a prize. There is usually about 10 prizes and about 50-75 people there. It was my third time and I still haven't won a prize. Granted, the first two times I sure didn't want to win a prize because then I would have to have been in front of all those people again. But, this time I wanted to! At least, I wanted to win one of the free dinners for two or $45 gift card for Outback or another cool prize. I would not have had to win some lame-o prize, though. Like a little, tiny cheap plastic water bottle or a free month of garbage service (ummm, I live in an apartment) or a free month of karate lessons. What do you say if you win one of those? But, alas, I won no prize. The more I go the better my chances, right? Is that a good reason to go to the networking meetings?
